The hardening of FCS ideology can be traced through the movement's iconographic development. The 1984 Durham UniversityDefender with its 'Crimes of the Gang of Four: Creation of the Permissive Society', through to the 1986Armageddon previously mentioned, clearly shows the progression of Libertarian ideas from moral authoritarianism and economic

liberty towards total permissiveness, via a desire to shock 'wets' and 'other socialists'.What may have started as imitation because of a lack of 'Conservative' icons, gradually built into a gallery of 'heroes' and 'villains' with the development of an impressive array of styles and themes. It is almost certain that some policy orientations followed, not merely from the reading of

sound literature, but from the need to follow up the destruction of a Socialist slogan with one promoting a positive cause. The 'Hang Mandela' slogan tacked on to a 'Free Mandela' poster was the logical precursor for 'Viva Savimbi'. If Unita had not existed, the FCS would have perhaps invented it.
Notes and References
1. There does not appear to be any particular -- easily accessible -- reason why the student Libertarians emerged first at St Andrews University. For more on the subject see: Scotsman, 9 September 83, p. 7; Glasgow Herald, 10 June 89, p. 10; Glasgow Herald, 7 August 91. Although St Andrews University was the main staging post for the FCS's Libertarian 'first wave' as it appeared in the 1970s, a number of members at the London School of Economics held similar views. John Blundell, the current General Director of the Institute of Economic Affairs was one such individual who espoused radical free market ideas as a student.
